Geeks everywhere know what day it is. That’s right, it’s International Firefighters Day!
Did you know that Davenport, Iowa is home to the International Fire Museum?
The Museum is located in the old Hose Company No. 4 at 2301 E 11th Street in the Village of East Davenport.
The Davenport Fire Antique & Restoration Society, founded in 1984 by members if the Davenport Fire Department, worked with the city to open the Museum in 1986.
The museum is home to artifacts, photographs, and fire-fighting memorabilia from around the world, including a 1951 Mack pumper purchased from the city of Riverdale, Iowa.
And what’s a Firefighter’s Day without photos of firefighters posed proudly with their engines?
Be sure to check out the museum this weekend while you are at the 5th annual Village in Bloom Arts Festival!
